Descartes to Kant returns this 2023 with a new studio album titled After Destruction. Soon to be released on September 29th in all formats, this conceptual material proposes a narrative arc exploring the cycles of existential creation and destruction.
After Destruction portrays psychic discomfort in a compulsively hyper-communicative but emotionally isolated society, with a retro-futuristic aesthetic, destructive guitars, synthesizers and soulful melodies.
Lampooning contemporary emotional consumerism, the band integrates an automaton character into their lineup: The DAK, an innovative machine designed to repair emotional damage, which appears through interludes both on the album and in the live act. Looking to restore your life after a catastrophe? Turning your pain into a work of art has never been easier.
The first single, the album's namesake, was released July 27th on all platforms, in addition to its respective video clip directed by Gamaliel de Santiago and choreographically designed by Mauricio Rico, as well as a second single "A Catastrophe" released on August 31st, with a lyric video animated by Nespy5euro.
